I found myself drawn to Trinity by the love for Scripture, liturgical practice, and theological tradition among faculty and students. The learning environment at Trinity is truly unique, and one which I am privileged to be a part of. An added perk is the wide range of musical traditions represented by the faculty, from Muddy Waters to Myles Davis and all points in between.
